WooCommerce: Add Content Under “Place Order” Button @ Checkout

Adding content to the WooCommerce Checkout page is very easy.

All you need is to identify the position where you want to show your content (by using my WooCommerce Checkout Visual Hook Guide) and then create a short PHP function that prints on screen the content you need.

In this example, we will see how to add some content below the “Place Order” button on the WooCommerce Checkout page. This could be very helpful, for example, to print your GDPR-compliant Privacy Policy message and make sure the user is aware about the use of personal data.

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files - if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide "Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?" and my video tutorial "Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?"

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.

  6. Thanks for the tip. Works like a charm.
    What about WPML, how would this translate?

    1. Hey Lambert, thanks for your comment! In order to make a string translatable you have to wrap it in a __() function: https://codex.wordpress.org/I18n_for_WordPress_Developers#Translatable_strings – hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi,

    When I add the snippet to my site, it breaks the site and every page is blank. Have you had any issues?

    1. Sorry, I had this snippet already on my site. The 2 instances collided and broke the site. All fixed.
